Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some questions often asked of loft conversions specialists? We hope they will answer some of the initial questions you have. If you need further information, please call us – we will be happy to help you.
What type of attic conversions are there?
The simplest conversion is to take the area already available in your attic and create a new space using roof windows, e.g. Fakro or Velux windows. A conversion with an extension to the roof is called a Dormer conversion.
Do I need planning permission for my attic conversion?
No – only in certain circumstances. One of our surveyors will be pleased to advise you how best to proceed.
Will I receive a compliance certificate with my attic conversion?
Yes, all work carried out by The Attic Man will be inspected by an independent Architect to insure that the work is carried out to the highest standard. In addition to this, a compliance Certificate will be issued to you on completion of all works.
Can an en-suite bathroom be fitted as part of an Attic conversion?
Can I get solar panels with my attic conversion?
Who will arrange for installation of plumbing and electrics?
We will arrange for all plumbing and electrical work to be carried out by our own tradesmen. This is included in our total price.
How will my new floor and existing roof be supported?
This is achieved by the use of steel beams – NOT TIMBER, as this will not comply with current buildings regulations.
Can all attics be converted?
“Yes” is the simple answer! In most cases, it is feasible to convert your attic space. The Attic Man offers a free Feasibility Study to potential customers, which involves a visit from one of our surveyors.
I'd like to know more, what I should I do now?
We can arrange for a no-obligation feasibility study to determine the most efficient way of carrying out your loft conversion. This way you can get a much better idea of what we can do for you.
